The Dying of St Margaret’s

Dying of St Margarets

A Purist adventure for Trail of Cthulhu.

The Dying Of St Margaret’s is an exploration character and madness in the spirit of HP Lovecraft.

On the remote Scottish island of St Margaret’s, Investigators take jobs at an all-girls private school. Each is searching for an acquaintance who disappeared from the school. The Investigators’ Drives carry them forward with increasing excitement and anticipation.

But what they discover drives them to the edge of insanity.

In this supplement, there is no escape, no comfort, no salvation when faced with the Mythos. You are powerless and insignificant: your only choices are death, insanity or a quiet life with a shattered mind.

Guns will not help you, reason will not protect you, faith will not give you comfort.

Written from the creator of Play Unsafe, it is a very different way to follow the Trail of Cthulhu.
